"A pigment of my imagination".

I don't know if that is a mistype or deliberate, but it sure fits better than "figment" in relation to this band. I hope that pigment had a psychedelic tinge to it. :)

I'm pretty sure you are talking about this show at the Cap Centre in '82.

The show kicks off with Playin > CF and four or five times during the 1st set (including Playin Jam > Red Rooster and Playin Jam > LIG), Jerry performs a little Playin jam into the start of songs. It's a theme that is continued in the second set as well (Shakedown > Playin Jam). It's also the first "Touch" encore and a nice unique show to have in the collection

Just listened to this the other day . I wasn't paying attention , and thought had mislabeled the cds, and put the 2nd set cd in first ! Great stuff .

haha yeah the "pigment" was an error but since you enjoy it i'll take credit for it. honestly, i wasnt expecting there to be many shows like this and i doubt i will be able to figure which is the show im looking for but they are all interesting and this a better outcome. so thanks for everyone's suggestions and they are much appreciated.

That's an interesting one. I think they were trying to shake up the set list at the time and doing the usual 2nd set stuff in the 1st set. Must have confused some people!
